Disease prevention and treatment

Every woman has a chance of giving birth to twins. The following tips will make it possible for you

Twins can occur either when two separate eggs become fertilized in the womb or when a single fertilized egg splits into two embryos.


Having twins is more common now than it was in the past. According to research, twin births have nearly doubled over the last 40 years.


Without wasting much time let's get into the facts and things to consider if you want to give birth to twins.


Doctors do not fully understand the reasons why twin pregnancies sometimes occur. However, some factors can increase the likelihood of giving birth to twins, including:

the woman’s age


• having a family history of twins


• having fertility treatments


Firstly, age really matter in this kind of situation, a woman has a higher chance of having twins if she conceives with the assistance of fertility treatment or is aged 35 years or over.

According to science and data, women who are aged 35 years or older are more likely to conceive twins. The reason for this is that women of this age are more likely than younger women to release more than one egg during their reproductive cycle. If sperm fertilizes two separate eggs, a twin pregnancy can occur.


Family history


A woman has a slightly higher chance of having twins if she has a family history of twins. A family history of twins on the mother’s side increases this likelihood more than a family history on the father’s side. However, this only applies if conception takes place without the use of fertility treatments.


Some people believe that twins can skip a generation, meaning that a person will potentially have twins if one of their grandparents did. However, there is little evidence to support this theory.


Fertility Treatment


Some fertility drugs work by stimulating a woman’s ovaries, which can sometimes cause them to release more than one egg. If sperm fertilizes both of these eggs, this can result in twins.


To increase the likelihood of success, the healthcare professional may place more than one embryo into the womb. Twins can occur if both embryos implant and develop successfully.
